Who We Are

The Junior League of Poughkeepsie is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Junior League members, reflecting a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and professional pursuits, work together to identify unmet needs, forge effective coalitions, and work for change. Time and time again, the Junior League of Poughkeepsie is among the first organizations to step up to the plate and tackle a community’s biggest challenges.

What We Do

We reach out to women of all races, religions and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League of Poughkeepsie has been the driving force behind the kinds of initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more prolific place to live. Members have tackled many social issues from domestic violence to health and nutrition to learning through play. By collaborating to build strong coalitions, identify community needs and develop effective and responsive programs to serve those needs, the Junior League of Poughkeepsie has established a long and effective tradition of service in Dutchess County.
